Microsoft Announces Project Scarlett, The Next-Gen Xbox

Microsoft today teased some its first plans for Project Scarlett, the next-generation Xbox, and the buzzwords make it sound impressive: up to 120 frames-per-second, a solid state drive, ray-tracing, and so on. It’ll be out in the spring of 2020.

And of course, Halo Infinite will be a launch title.

“For us, the console is vital and central to our experience,” said Xbox boss Phil Spencer, adding that it should be designed and optimised for “one thing only: gaming,” a shot at the Xbox One’s original disastrous launch. He then played a sizzle reel of developers pumping up the next Xbox with buzz words about super-fast loading times, huge frame-rates, and other impressive-sounding specs.

As for Xbox’s biggest competitor, earlier this year, Sony semi-announced the PlayStation 5 through a Wired magazine article, in which the company said it would be backwards compatible and have a solid state drive.
